The New York Times put out a call on Facebook yesterday asking for experiences, both good and bad, when commuting on the “DC Metro”. I’m not sure the reporter (Sheryl Stolberg) knows what she’s getting in to.
Mr. Lamond said he was very grateful to Stephanie Russo, widow of longtime owner Tom Russo, for the opportunity and he wanted our readers to know that there are no plans to change anything at Chadwicks, one of Alexandria’s most popular joints.
Mr. Lamond mentioned Chadwicks has a couple of new events in the works which as always, our readers will be the first to hear about.
Starbucks (SBUX) is raising prices again starting Tuesday, with the increases ranging from 5 to 20 cents for most affected drinks, the company said.
The Seattle-based company also raised prices nationally about a year ago.
A small and large brewed coffee will each go up by 10 cents in most areas of the country, Starbucks says. That would bring the price of a large coffee to $2.45 in most U.S. stores.
Some other coffee sellers are cutting prices. Last week, The J.M. Smucker Co. said it would cut prices for most of its coffee products because of declines in future prices for unroasted coffee beans. In an emailed statement Monday, Starbucks Corp. said coffee costs are only part of its expenses, which also include rent, labor, marketing and equipment.
Whole Foods initially refuted the claim (see link above) but, then CEOs Walter Robb and John Mackey released the video ‘mea culpa’ below late last week in which they essentially owned up to the findings and acknowledged mistakes were made.
Also, on Saturday July 25, at 12:00 PM, volunteers are needed to help deliver food as part of “Bike for Good”, the Food Rescue program at the Old Town Farmers’ Market. Details and sign-up at this link or contact Jake Jakubek.
